Team story

[p]As many of you are aware, my Mum LOVES her bike and in a bid to secure “favourite” child status, I have agreed to join her this September in what will certainly be the biggest challenge either of us have undertaken by a country mile ….. in fact by 980 country miles! We are cycling from Land’s End to John o’ Groats. [/p][p]During this nine day challenge from the 7th-15th of September, we will cycle through 27 counties across England, Wales and Scotland, camping on our way, in aid of two fantastic charities, which are both very close to our hearts: Alzheimer’s Research UK and Cure Parkinson’s Trust. Every penny of the money you donate will go directly to the charities - split 50:50.[/p][p]Following the purchase of two (matching) new bikes, the training has commenced! We have a fundraising target of £10,000 between us and all the money we raise will act as the much needed fuel for our tired legs as we ride from one end of the country to another. [/p][p]My Grandmother was diagnosed with vascular dementia and we all witnessed, at first hand, her suffering for many years. Alzheimer’s affects over 850,000 people living in the UK currently and is now one of the country’s leading causes of death. The number of people suffering from the illness is due to rise to 1 million in 2025 and 2 million by 2050. Alzheimer’s Research UK has been making huge advances in understanding the causes of dementia, yet still unfortunately there continues to be no cure.[/p][p]We have a good family friend who has been living with Parkinson’s for many years. We have recently seen what research advances make to his day to day life. Every hour, 2 people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s. That is around 1 adult in every 350. Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over, but younger people can get it too. The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) was set up in 2005 to challenge the view that there is no cure for Parkinson’s. The goal is to discover treatments that change the way the disease progresses and transform the lives of those who live with Parkinson's. Thanks to major inroads and constant advances in their understanding of Parkinson’s, new efforts to match the emerging science with innovative therapies are underway around the world. Their work is to guide, promote and sustain these efforts and ultimately find a cure. [img][/img][/p]
